Human resources plays a vital and increasingly important role in the world today. The HR profession is at a critical time where we are being asked to do more than ever in a climate of change and uncertainty that is being felt in every workplace. We are a part of a global team of skilled professionals. As HR manages the challenges of globalization, the talent crunch, and transforming workplaces, our organizations are counting on us to push our HR and business expertise to the limit and lead them into the future. All of these competing demands require the element of innovation to remain at the forefront.
